Lavish yellow fruit, including some almost overripe pineapple. This just avoids tipping into opulence; there’s healthy acidity and that lifts this monster dry riesling at the bold, herbal finish. From almost 70 year old vines. Biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold. 95 points, Stuart Piggott, jamessuckling.com (09/2018)
Aulerde is Wittmann’s warmest site. The vineyard’s slopes rise from the glacial valley of the Rhine to the rim of a high plateau. Wittmann’s Riesling grows on a subsoil of clay and gravelly sand.
